God Is . . .

We Cannot Know God Fully . . .

God is spirit, triune, infinite, holy, unchangeable, love. The true and living God is too much for us to handle, to know, to trust, to understand, to worship. The incomprehensible one is simply too much for us.

. . . Yet We Can Know Him Truly

Yet he reveals himself to us through his Word. And while we may not understand all that the Bible tells us about God, we must aim to believe and communicate as much as we can about him. We must press on to know the Lord, a difficult but rewarding task, because worship without knowledge is idolatry.

. . . In Christ

To know the attributes of God is to not only know God, but to know what God is like. To know what God is like is to know what God is toward us. More pointedly, to know God is to know Christ. Christ is the stage upon which the attributes of God shine most clearly. Knowing the attributes of God is essential for our everyday living, and they need to be seen in a Christ-centered framework.

Nothing we do can be properly understood apart from what God is.
